How to Get Tickets

Seating is limited, so we recommend purchasing tickets in advance.

  1. Pick up advance tickets directly from the OBU Science Division Office.
    • Located in Room 202 of the W.P. Wood Science Building.
    • Map and directions on how to find us.


  2. Reserve tickets via the Internet:
    1. Send email to the Director. Indicate which show you want tickets for. Be sure to provide a specific date, along with your phone number and your email address.
    2. We will contact you to confirm that seats are available for that date and show.
    3. Pick up the ticket at the Planetarium door at least 5 minutes before the start of the show.
    4. If you are contacting us less than one week in advance of the show you wish to attend, we recommend instead that you stop by the OBU Science Division to purchase your tickets directly.

Hints and tips to better enjoy the show

  • Arrive early to help your eyes become dark-adapted.
  • The best views are from seats farther back and/or toward the outside (beanbags may be available at the front).
  • Please do not bring food or drinks into the planetarium.
  • Taking photographs is not allowed in the planetarium, except by arrangement during non-show times.
  • Late admission would disrupt the dark environment necessary for viewing shows and is not allowed.
  • If a child becomes restless, etc., you may exit through the main entrance after the show has begun, but you will not be able to reenter the planetarium.
